SPEAKERS

KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Professor Andy Keeling

Professor Andy Keeling studied computer science in the early nineties at the University of Bristol (UK) before switching to Dentistry, qualifying in 1999.

He worked in full time general practice for a decade before migrating to a full time University position at Leeds School of Dentistry. Over the past 15 years he has built and led the Digital Dentistry Group, with the aim of investigating and developing technological solutions to genuine clinical problems. Current work is focussed on accurately getting the patient into the computer, including 3D scanning, facial scanning, and dynamic articulation. A second strand of work involves 3D printing for dental training models and for dentures. Most of the work involves traditional software engineering combined with machine learning, followed by clinical trials.

Andy is a Senior Consultant for GC IaG (Switzerland) advising on all aspects of digital dentistry. A spin-out company was recently formed in Leeds to develop various outputs from his academic group and has received around GBP 3 million in funding to date from government grants and other investments.

Andy has authored over 50 peer-reviewed academic papers and regularly collaborates with other international groups.
